Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh, Second T20I: Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you in creating your fantasy team for the second T20I between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh in Harare

The visitors extended their authority over the host with yet another thumping win, this time it was in the shortest format of the game. Posting 152 on board after being all-out, Zimbabwe’s hapless bowling effort handed Bangladesh a win by eight wickets. A perfect result in their 100th match in this format. The visitors extend the lead with 10 wins to four overall and in the last five, Bangladesh have outclassed the hosts in all five. Series is on the line as Zimbabwe find ways for survival

HEAD TO HEAD

Overall: Matches – 14 | ZIM – 4 wins | BAN – 10 wins

Last five matches: ZIM – 0 win | BAN – 5 wins

SUGGESTED TEAM
While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. Based on algorithms, we have come up with one team

GROUND DETAILS

The Harare Sports Club has seen 14 T20 matches since 2019. On an average, teams have scored 145 runs in the first innings and teams batting first have won seven out of the 13 matches with one no result. However, teams have chosen to field in 10 matches and won four. Against the toss trend, Zimbabwe 

The pacers have had the wood over spinners in terms of wickets as they have bagged 57.4 percent of wickets as compared to 39 percent by spinners. But, when it comes to picking wickets early, there isn’t a huge gap. Spinners have bagged wickets at a strike rate of 19.9 as compared to 18.3 by pacers. Economically, spinners (6.9) have been way better than the pacers (7.5).

SUGGESTED CAPTAIN

A stunner to dismiss Marumani, A wicket and a half century with the bat. It was a complete performance from Soumya Sarkar in the first T20I. He has been one of the most successful batsmen for Bangladesh since 2020 in internationals. He has scored 210 runs at an average of 42 and a strike rate of 150. To go along, he has three 50+ scores, no other Bangladeshi batsman has scored as many as him. 

Our Criclytics player projections predicts, Sarkar could score 19-29 runs and pick 0-1 wicket in the second T20I

X-FACTOR

He might haven’t made a big name for himself, but Mohammad Naim silently has been scoring runs. In T20Is since 2020, Naim has scored 220 runs, which is the most for Bangladesh in this time period. In the first T20I, Naim and Sarkar stitched a 102-run partnership for the first wicket that laid the platform. He scored an unbeaten 63 to take Bangladesh over the line.  

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Naim could score 25-37 runs in the second T20I

The wily left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman, is a must-have bowler in the fantasy team, especially in the shortest format. Mustafizur has been the most successful Bangladesh bowler in T20s since 2019 with 92 wickets. More importantly, 63.1 percent of his wickets have come during the death overs. In the first T20I as well, out of his three wickets, two came in the death overs  

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Mustafizur could bag 1-2 wickets in the second T20I

He might have failed to pick up a wicket in the first T20I. The year 2021 has been a blissful one for Luke Jongwe. He has bagged nine wickets at a strike rate of 9.2. No other Zimbabwe bowler has bagged as many wickets as him in this calendar year. All his wickets came in his last series against Pakistan. On the back of good form Jongwe is a certain X-factor. 

Our Criclytics player projection predicts, Jongwe could bag 1-2 wickets in the second T20I
